APPLETON, Wis.—Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is defending his personal wealth as Democrats try to portray him as out of touch with most people.

A former businessman who is worth up to $250 million, Romney would be among the nation's richest presidents if elected. He told a campaign audience in Wisconsin on Friday that continued attacks on success would produce one outcome: "a lot less success."

He's also downplaying his first job after Harvard business and law schools by saying it was "an entry-level job."

President Barack Obama's campaign is pushing Romney to release years of tax returns dating to his career at a Boston-based private equity firm.

Romney is campaigning for Tuesday's GOP primary in Wisconsin. Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan endorsed Romney on Friday and appeared with him.
